Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, Pymouss!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Wikimedia roll descriptionsEdit

Salut Pymouss, your assignment of string "Wikimedia roll" as description on over 23 000 items from this one to this one (in br language) does not follow the guidelines. Was it made on purpose? -- LaddΩ chat ;) 13:15, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

Salut Laddo,
On est tous francophones, parlons français ;)
Mea culpa, j'étais en atelier Wikidata avec Pymouss quand il a suggéré de de faire ces modifications et cela m'a semblé une bonne idée. Sans être d'une utilité flagrante, je ne vois pas ce qui est contraire à Help:Description/fr. Pourrais-tu préciser ce qui ne va pas ?
Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 18:08, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: Bonjour à vous deux, mes excuses je me suis un peu emballé en voyant cocktail et international E-road network/route européenne réduits (pour le breton) à une description de "liste" sans grande signification. Cependant je concède que ce genre de description a été beaucoup appliqué un peu partout, hélas! Mais pour le cas des listes, j'ai plusieurs objections aux descriptions génériques: souvent ces items sans description ont de bonnes descriptions de sous-classes P289 (e.g. "breuvage alcoolisé") que le presque-gadget AutoDesc exploite à fond pour créer à la volée de très bonnes descriptions. En imposant cette description générique, vous empêchez cet outil (ou d'autres du même type) de fournir des descriptions mieux ciblées et plus efficaces. AMHA je pense que la modif systématique de Pymouss était inadéquate, mais je comprend que vous pensiez autrement. -- LaddΩ chat ;) 23:29, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
Pas de problème, au contraire. Et effectivement quand je vois cocktail (Q134768) et international E-road network (Q106123), je me dis qu'il y a quelque chose de bizarre, je ne vois pas trop si instance of (P31) = Wikimedia list article (Q13406463) devrait être conservé ou retiré et sinon, est-ce que subclass of (P279) n'est pas en doublon par rapport à is a list of (P360) ; en tout cas, clairement dans ces deux cas-là la description « liste d'un projet Wikimedia » ne convient pas vraiment (quelque soit la langue). Au passage, c'est aussi un peu le bazar entre cocktail (Q134768) et mixed drink (Q3246609)...
Du coup, pour revenir aux éléments sans descriptions, qu'en penses-tu : il me semble que le mieux est que de se concentrer sur les éléments qui ne contiennent que instance of (P31) = Wikimedia list article (Q13406463) et aucun autre P31 ou P279, cela t'irait ?
Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 06:59, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: Difficile de généraliser, mais ce serait déjà moins risqué de laisser de côté ceux qui n'ont ni P31 ni P279 en effet. Dans ces cas, savoir que c'est une liste est mieux que rien, bien que si on creusait un peu on pourrait sans doute identifier un P279 applicable à plusieurs des items de liste. Depuis très longtemps, il y a débat sur les articles qui sont à la fois descriptifs et listes dans certaines langues, alors que dans d'autres langues on a deux articles distincts. Les items se retrouvent avec un duo P31=liste et P279. L'idéal serait de consacrer P31=liste aux listes pures (fr:Liste des cocktails par type d'alcool) et assigner juste P279 aux items mixte comme fr:Ministre de la Jeunesse (Écosse). Mais bon, à l'impossible, nul n'est tenu ;) -- LaddΩ chat ;) 13:45, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Modif étrange sur Q23296926Edit

Salut,

Tu as fait plusieurs modifications sur Q23296926 indiquant que cette rue a disparue et a été remplacée par la Q23297110. C'est très étrange car si je regarde sur une carte (au hasard OpenStreetMap) je vois bien encore cette rue... Ceci dit, l'ancien nom de la rue des Trente était bien rue de Gaillon comme l'indique par exemple s:fr:Notices sur les rues de Rennes 1883 ou la base Gertrude. J'imagine qu'il y a eu confusion, non ?

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 13:25, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Idem pour Q23296970 (du coup, cela génère deux violtions de contraintes sur Wikidata:Database reports/Constraint violations/P3182 ce qui est logique puisque FANTOIR code (P3182) ne concerne que des lieux actuels). Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 11:06, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Petite peur et coup de pied dans le culEdit

Je vais t'avouer que j'ai eu une petite peur quand j'ai vu que tu commençais à ajouter des Federal Heritage Building (Q3579115) à Montréal, j’étais déjà rendu dans les 150 lignes dans le CSV pour complété ceux du Québec. Bon ça m'a donné le coup de pied dans le cul pour terminer mon CSV à envoyer sur Quickstatement. Fait que j'ai fini le patrimoine culturel au Québec. :) --Fralambert (talk) 21:39, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Fralambert C'est en voulant partager mes photos montréalaises de cet été que je me suis rendu compte que la Liste des lieux patrimoniaux de Montréal comportait plus de lieux que la carte de Monumental basée sur Wikidata. J'ai créé grossièrement les 14 éléments manquants en me disant que je repasserai plus tard pour affiner. Et tu as été plus rapide que moi ;) Pymouss (talk) 22:04, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
    C'est certain que d'être rendu à 150 sur une liste de 182 éléments à créer, ça a aidé. --Fralambert (talk) 23:31, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Removed claim: Grand Paris is located in Paris.Edit

(from Wikipedia)The Métropole du Grand Paris: The métropole came into existence on January 1, 2016 and includes the City of Paris, all 123 communes in the surrounding inner-suburban departments (Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis and Val-de-Marne) that were part of the pre-1968 Seine department, plus seven communes in two of the outer-suburban departments, including the communes of Argenteuil in Val-d'Oise, and Paray-Vieille-Poste in Essonne, the latter of which covers part of Orly airport.

The claim that it contains Paris is the correct one.

Research

Two research projects about Wikimedia Commons are currently ongoing, or in the process of being finished:

  1. Research:Curation workflows on Wikimedia Commons—a project that seeks to understand the current workflows of Commons contributors who curate media (categorize it, delete it, link to it from other projects, etc.).
  2. Research:Technical needs of external re-users of Commons media—soliciting feedback from individuals and organizations that re-use Commons content outside of Wikimedia projects, in order to understand their current painpoints and unmet needs.

Structured Data Newsletter - Research link fixEdit

Greetings,

The newsletter omitted two interwiki prefixes, breaking the links on non-meta wikis as you might see above. Here are the correct links:

  1. m:Research:Curation workflows on Wikimedia Commons—a project that seeks to understand the current workflows of Commons contributors who curate media (categorize it, delete it, link to it from other projects, etc.).
  2. m:Research:Technical needs of external re-users of Commons media—soliciting feedback from individuals and organizations that re-use Commons content outside of Wikimedia projects, in order to understand their current painpoints and unmet needs.

My apologies, I hope you find the corrected links helpful.

  • The info portal on Structured Commons now includes a section on GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums).
  • We are currently planning the first GLAM pilot projects that will use structured data on Wikimedia Commons. One project has already started: the Swedish Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. Read the project brief.
  • The documentation for batch uploads of files to Wikimedia Commons will be improved in 2019, as part of preparing for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. To prepare, the GLAM team at the Wikimedia Foundation wants to understand better which types of documentation you already use, and how you like to learn new GLAM-Wiki skills and knowledge.

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)Edit

My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

IntercommunalitéEdit

Bonjour,

Je vous contacte sur les bons conseils de User:VIGNERON. Je crois comprendre que vous avez ajouté beaucoup d'informations sur les intercommunalités en France, notamment suite aux fusions de 2017. Je m'intéresse actuellement à l'ajout des élus locaux sur Wikidata : j'ai récemment créé des éléments pour tous les maires de France et j'envisage de les compléter en indiquant leur mandat communautaire (quand ils en ont un). Je travaillerai sans doute aussi sur d'autres points.

Est-ce que ce sujet vous intéresse toujours ? Ma page de discussion est ouverte si vous souhaitez échanger.

Structured Data - blogs posted in Wikimedia SpaceEdit

There are two separate blog entries for Structured Data on Commons posted to Wikimedia Space that are of interest:

  • Working with Structured Data on Commons: A Status Report, by Lucas Werkmeister, discusses some ways that editors can work with structured data. Topics include tools that have been written or modified for structured data, in addition to future plans for tools and querying services.
  • Structured Data on Commons - A Blog Series, written by me, is a five-part posting that covers the basics of the software and features that were built to make structured data happen. The series is meant to be friendly to those who may have some knowledge of Commons, but may not know much about the structured data project.
I hope these are informative and useful, comments and questions are welcome. All the blogs offer a comment feature, and you can log in with your Wikimedia account using oAuth. I look forward to seeing some posts over there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:33, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Structured data across Wikimedia is starting!Edit

Hello there, Pymouss! Hope to find you well. :)

I am writing to you because a new WMF project, Structured Data Across Wikimedia (SDAW), is about to start. SDAW is a grant-funded programme that will explore ways to structure content on wikitext pages in a way that will be machine-recognizable and -relatable, in order to make reading, editing, and searching easier and more accessible across projects and on the Internet.

The reason why I am contacting you is because of your work across the Wikimedia projects, and your opinion would be of great interest for us to kickstart the discussion. We defined a series of questions we would like to have feedback on. If you want to ask a question on your own, or just want to share with us your ideas or opinions, please feel free to do so!

Also, if you know some other user(s) that can be interested, please let me know or invite them to join the discussion. The more, the better!

Hope to hear from you soon! -- Sannita (WMF) (talk) 15:05, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
